If you like a little artery-clogging goodness once in a while and Five Guys is where you get it, you’ve probably gone through the less enjoyable wait. Long lines up to the register, then an even longer wait for your food. I can’t help you with the register line but the food wait you can dodge.
Check the menu ahead of time, call the store near you and place your order. When you arrive you still have to wait in the line to pay, but once you do they’ll holler over to the kitchen staff and only then do they place your fries with your order, keeping them piping hot and crispy. My wait was less than sixty seconds after I paid.
